SW ATLANTA: Suspected lightning house fire kills at least 3 (VIDEO)

Three people died in a house fire overnight in southwest Atlanta.

Firefighters were searching for a fourth person. The fire broke out just after 2 a.m. at the brick, split-level branch home on Revere Road.

A storm cell packed with lightning had moved through the area at the time. Some neighbors believe a nearby tree was struck and the bolt traveled to the house.

The area west of I-285 is about 11 miles southwest of downtown Atlanta.

Crews remain at the scene on Tuesday morning.
